Center for Global and Economic Studies
Fostering a community of global leaders
The Center for Global and Economic Studies provides a focal point for addressing the increasing importance of global economic issues. We strive to promote understanding of global economic issues in the academic and business communities, especially at Marquette University and in the southeast Wisconsin region. The Applied Global Business Learning program provides students with opportunities to apply their business skills in real-world settings in developing countries. The Center sponsors numerous activities at Marquette to expand awareness of global economic concerns. Events include the Distinguished Speaker Series in Economic Issues, the Marburg Memorial Lecture, public presentations on contemporary economic issues. See our blog for up-to-date information on Center’s activities
Economics at Marquette University is offered as an undergraduate major and minor and in the College of Business Administration. Graduate students study global economic issues in great depth in the MBA and Master of Science in Applied Economics programs.
In December 2014, the Center brought Mark Rampolla, founder of ZICO coconut water, to campus for a talk on how to find happiness and success through entreprenurial ventures.
